As Technology has filled all sides of our lives, these days It is critical to learn more about the platforms; their algorithms and their effects on our decisions. As mentioned in this podcast, it's vital to think about the content before touching the SEND TO ALL icon. I hope it will take place soon.

I had never heard of Asmr before I searched the YouTube for the videos. My personal experience of the videos was very dark! There seems to be some curious, dark associations! Why almost all the asmr "artists" are women? Why are they dressing rather sexy, revealing clothes? Not, surprisingly, I can guess that a great portion of listeners are men! I believe it touches a deeper feeling of the need for intimacy, rather that being "calming and relaxing."

Jess… whoever she is, stated that Fed-Ex dealt with a worker shortage while UPS did not throughout the pandemic. You are either completely ignorant or just doesn’t believe in research before you speak. This is outrageous that this would be said on a national broadcast. What a joke…I’ve worked for UPS for going on 8 years. You should be ashamed to put this information out to the public. We’ve been understaffed and over worked throughout the pandemic. Do your frigging research Jess/NPR, this is a joke. Makes me wonder what else you guys falsify or embellish. I’ll unsubscribe gladly.

TIL..take every griefing heart matter serious n try to not get overwhelmed because it destroys the heart..laughter therapy perhaps.. confession: i at times remind my father of mental abuse inflicted on me so he can apologize for ONCE but his EGO doesnt allow him to... he gets stressed but refuses to apologize, hurts me even more instead of heal. Lesson: This episode tells me TO NEVER REMIND something sad n stressing like this..it could kill him.

A fantastic and educational program indeed. It's time for all of us, growers, distributors, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs, chefs, and consumers to think about and act on #begoodfood in our day to day lives. This program is a must listen to show for us all.🌾🌿🥦🥬🥑🌽

I feel totally bamboozled by this episode and I'm pretty disappointed. This episode isn't about luck, fortune or chance at all past the first speaker. This episode is about racism. Totally misleading title. #clickbait
